What is pleural thickening?

Pleural thickening is the scarring and fibrosis of the pleura, the double layered membrane which surrounds the lungs and lines the inside of the rib cage. When the pleura thickens, it becomes less elastic which means that these organs cannot adequately function.

As a result, those diagnosed with this condition could:

  • Suffer from breathlessness
  • Feel pain in the side of the chest
  • Describe feeling 'tightness' across the affected area

What causes plural thickening?

Pleural thickening, in most cases, is caused by inhaling asbestos fibres. Although asbestos has now been banned, the condition can take up to 30 years to develop after initial exposure.

A number of industries are commonly associated with a high risk of developing asbestos related disease due to regular historic exposure to asbestos dust, which include: 

  • Plumbers
  • Electricians
  • Builders
  • Carpenters
  • Painters or decorators
  • Shipbuilders

If you or a loved one worked in any of the industries listed above and have subsequently been diagnosed with pleural thickening, please call us on freephone 0808 252 0678.
